This year brings a different dynamic. Schaub's "champion" is gone.

When he wasn't sitting on the bench looking disinterested during the games in which Keenum played, with very little communication each time Keenum came off the field.

I'm a little worried that showing interest in Cassell could have revealed O'Brien's hand. It might send the message that he doesn't really believe in the top 3 QB's, which would devalue the 1.1 spot a little.

I'd argue the opposite. Henne signed a similar deal with the Jaguars as Cassell with the Vikings. Many are taking them as mentor contracts signaling they will be drafting QBs of the future and are giving up on Ponder and Gabbert. The contracts are overpriced for backups and talent but structured to be tolerable to cut after the coming season. Kind of a feeding frenzy to not have to start the rookie by a trio of new head coaches.

OK, so where does this leave the Texans in regard to getting a backup "mentor" QB? Who are the FA QB's left that can come in and play halfway decently and mentor whomever the Texans draft? They are starting to run out of options since Cutler, Henne, and now Cassel have all resigned with their teams. I was really thinking they were going to land Cassel. Guess the Texans were just leverage so he could get more money. It's starting to look like they may have to keep Schaub which probably will be hard for a lot of the fans to swallow.

but for a while there I thought any QB that plays for us that wears #8 pretty much fails

8 should be banned from Texans history. If we had a kicker that wore 8 he would kick a FG that would not only be blocked, but blocked and caught for a pick 6.

Looking for veteran leadership is common in our situation. The tip, would have been the contract. Less than $5M, it's no big deal, backups are regularly getting paid $3M/yr.

Had they paid him in the $8M~$10M range, he's being brought in to be a starter.
